The world champion: the Race King ProTection Folding Tyre by Continental

The Race King is a legend. It heralded the triumph of Conti mountain bike tyres on the world's race tracks. Irina Kalentieva won two world championship titles with it and it has its share of countless other victories. And it has become even faster, cleaner and safer. The rolling resistance is almost at the level of a road bike tyre. Despite the outstanding grip, no mud sticks to the tread. The ProTection carcass versions manufactured in Korbach with the BlackChili compound guarantee significantly better puncture protection without noticeable extra weight.

Premium tyres, manufactured to achieve peak performances. Latest technologies, developed with the most successful athletes in the world and handmade by experienced specialists in Korbach (Handmade in Germany). Selected materials for highest quality are used here.

Black Chili Compound
The rolling characteristics of the rubber compound of a tyre are determined by three interacting factors: Static friction (grip), rolling resistance and mileage. The dilemma: If one of these factors is improved, at least one other factor deteriorates in return. Black Chili Compound is the name of Continental's revolutionary tread compound based on the latest findings in polymer and raw material research. For Black Chili, Continental refines newly developed synthetic rubbers with proven natural rubber to produce particularly high-performance tread compounds. Conti adds nanoscale carbon black particles to these rubbers, which are optimised in shape and surface properties in order to match the compound to the respective application of the tyre. Tyres with Black Chili Compound achieve an unprecedented level of performance. Compared to activated silica tyres Black Chili tyres have 26 % lower rolling resistance, 30 % higher static friction value (grip) and 5 % higher mileage. Whether on a Road bike or MTB - the speed and grip advantage is clearly noticeable! The complex compound technology is so sensitive that tyres with Black Chili are produced exclusively at Continental in Korbach.

The ProTection technology gives tyres the perfect blend of smooth running, grip and puncture protection. This is made possible by an additional all-round puncture protection layer, which makes the entire tyre particularly resistant and insensitive to puncture. Despite the extra ply, the tyre offers very good damping and rolls cleanly over the toughest trails. BlackChili provides smooth run and grip. Another feature of German-made ProTection technology is Tubeless Ready. The Revolution Tubeless Ready base makes mounting the tyre easy and uncomplicated. For optimum results in sealing and in use, Conti recommends the use of the Continental RevoSealant.

The tyres with Continental ECO technology benefit from over 100 years of experience in the development of moped and motorcycle tyres. Optimised and recommended for E-bikes up to 25 km/h, they guarantee low rolling resistance and good puncture protection thanks to their particularly high-quality construction. The durability was tested especially for E-bikes to counteract the premature wear and tear caused by the additional driving force.

the low rotational resistance and the high cruising capacity are great, and the vertical traction on the slippery slope is perfect for rear wheels.

Выбирал между Maxxis Ikon EXO Protection и этой Conti. Выбрал эти, т.к. цена более ниже. Докупил пару камер Conti Light. Установка без проблем руками.
На дороге едет быстро, в лесу (камни, листва, грунт, гравий) держит ну просто отлично. Давление 2.2 сзади, и 2 спереди.
Грязь не любит абсолютно, замыливается и скользит как на льду

I have been using Continental Race King in the past years. My previous model was a RaceSport version, which is lighter than the Protection but has no reinforced sidewalls. I actually had a cut in the sidewall, but the inner tube did not get punctured. I could repair the sidewall with patches. Now I have chosen the Protection version because it has thicker reinforced sidewalls and it is Tubeless Ready. This year's (2018) model is somewhat lighter than the previous Protection version, and there is a minimal change in the tread pattern. Although this tyre is mostly recommended for hardpack, I use it as an allround tyre because it has great grip even in mixed conditions.
